Just a few decades ago, depression was a condition that people were reluctant to talk about. People diagnosed with depression were sometimes viewed as weak, being unable to handle the tough times in life. That has all changed. It seems that every time I turn on the television I see a commercial for one of the many new antidepressants on the market today. There are always blue skies, green grass, and big smiles in these ads. Views on depression have flip flopped from what they once were, and it could be one of the most overdiagnosed conditions there is.

Oh, the drama. There is no question that the main thing that separates bodybuilding today from any other time in it’s history is the fact everyone and their dog has a coach. Shit – everyone and their dog IS a coach. The concept of having someone experienced guide you through a contest prep or a professional enlisting the help of a “guru” to take him to the next level is not exclusive to this modern age, but it has spiraled out of control.
